PlayStation accidentally leaks important PS5 controller

PlayStation accidentally leaked an important new feature for the PS5 DualSense controller. The PS5 controller is one of the biggest selling points of the new PlayStation controller. Between the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, it offers an experience you can’t get on the Xbox Series X or Nintendo Switch. It’s an impressive controller, but right now it’s impossible to update the firmware without accessing a PS5, which is a big problem for PC players with the controller. That said, it looks like this issue is finally getting fixed.

With PlayStation bringing so many games to PC, it’s almost inexplicable that PC users can’t currently update the DualSense’s firmware without access to a PS5. Sony hasn’t officially announced this is changing, but a cached and now-deleted Sony license agreement has leaked just as much.

Not only does this leak mean PC users will be able to update the PS5 controller, but it also means PC users should be able to rely on official support in the future.

For now, take everything here with a grain of salt until Sony officially announces all this information. Of course, we didn’t need this leak to know that Sony would eventually fix this issue. It was unavoidable, but this leak seemingly relays the imminent addition where we previously had no timeline on when to expect it, as PlayStation notoriously moves at its own pace when it comes to this sort of thing, ie, slow. .

At the time of publishing, Sony has not addressed this leak in any capacity. It never comments on rumors and leaks, so we don’t expect this to change, but if it does, we’ll update the story accordingly.
